Tottenham are expected to enter negotiations with Celtic manager Anze Postecoglou in the next few days, the British public broadcaster BBC reported on May 5 (KST).

“Spurs officials are expected to outline their future plans and explain to Postecoglou why they believe he is the right man for the job,” the BBC said, citing information from a highly placed source.

The BBC adds that Tottenham are keen to avoid a repeat of the 2021 saga, which saw them scramble for weeks to find a replacement for former manager Jose Mourinho.

“Despite Postecoglou’s lack of coaching experience in European soccer, he has won praise for the way Celtic play,” he said of the local mood. Postecoglou has maintained an aggressive tactical style.

Postecoglou reached the pinnacle of his coaching career this season when he won the Scottish Premiership and two cups, a ‘Domestic Treble’.

He spent four years at the helm of the Australian national team, where he experienced the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and won the 2015 Asian Cup. In 2019, he led Yokohama F.Marinos to their first title in 15 years in the Japanese J-League. He took over as Celtic manager in 2021.

Tottenham sacked Antonio Conte in March and spent the remainder of the season under acting manager Christian Stellini and Ryan Mason. After finishing fourth under Conte, Spurs went into a downward spiral and ended the season in eighth place, outside of the UEFA Champions League.

A number of ‘big names’ had been linked with Conte’s successor, including former Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann and former Spain national team coach Luis Enrique, but none had made any progress in negotiations. After top target Arne Slott opted to stay at Feyenoord, the club quickly turned to Postecoglou.

Korean soccer fans who heard the news of Postecoglou’s impending appointment were concerned about his long stay in Asia and lack of experience in the European big leagues, that he might bring in a lot of Japanese players, such as Kyogo Furuhashi, who was a mainstay at Celtic, and that he might make Tottenham a “mid-tier tech” team.
